Hi Everyone!! I was one of the lucky people who picked up the Cricut Explore with a 60% coupon from Joann's. They made a huge mistake letting the coupon apply so I got it for $119, can't beat that. I really wasn't looking to pick one up since I have my Silhouette Cameo but for that price I couldn't pass it up.
Here's a quick card I made with it, Design Space is very easy to use, but it's nothing like Make the Cute or Silhouette Studio, luckily I have the 1.9 version of SSDE on my computer so I can save my designs as svgs and import them into design space to cut. I'll be able to use my silhouette files which I'm very happy about, I imported some of these cuts from the Silhouette Store. So far I like how the Explore cuts and it's much quieter than my cameo. It also came with a bluetooth adapter so I used my Surface Pro 3, it worked great, really love that. More come as I find time to play!!
